Re: R.A. Dickey may be close to being a Blue Jay

According to this....

The New York Post reports that the Mets would also send catcher Josh Thole and a non-elite prospect to the Jays in exchange for catchers Travis DArnaud and John Buck, right-hander Noah Syndergaard and another non-elite prospect.
That's just way too much to give up. D'Arnaud is one thing, but him AND Syndergaard? Too much.

I agree, Syndergaard isn't one you want to send out. Clearly this team is going for broke.

Drunk Jays Fan hard the the name Matt Harvey floating around there. Some of the stuff 'were hearing' might be Romero might have to fight for a job this spring. Currently he's #4, if Dickey comes, he's #5 unless Happ beats him to it, and another dude comes, Ricky is #6.

One thing, injuries to the teams hitters aren't going to stop the pitching of this team. Not sure how it will all work out once Kyle and Drew get back. Drew should be a solid #3 guy. Kyle possibly #2 if he can figure out his shit. (his dad did win the Cy Young) Maybe the Jays will see how things go in June, and if they are leading and have a glut of aces fooling around in the BP, they might get some top prospects from a team needing some help.

Still hope they try to snag Swisher though.

Listening to the FAN 590 right now.

Bah, prospects are prospects.....unless they can perform at an elite level (Travis Snider anyone?)....we might as well ship them out for the known commodity....I'd ship them out if I knew the other teams in my division were weak and had holes and that the time to strike was now....

I only really see a couple of "holes" left, CF and 1B....Get rid of Rasmus, bring up Gose he can patrol CF....and get rid of Lind and top to bottom the lineup would be crazy scary......

So I'm willing to bet part of the farm...because you never know for sure whats going to happen with these rookies, Syndergaard is still about 3 years away from being ready so we'll see how that works out....

LF is Melky Cabrara, he should be fine, he was the all-star MVP. Rasmus in CF should be fine too, he should be an elite player. Plus he's the only one on the team that can hit to level 500.

1st base is questionable if Edwin DH's and Lind can't keep it together.

And has JoeyBats really recovered from that wrist injury.

As good as the lineup is, it's only as good as Bautista makes it.

Good enough that Joey Bats 19 wanted to play winter ball. Although the team should be strong enough without him. Jays were losing because JP, Brent, Adam, Rasmus were either on the DL or playing hurt.

Edwin was pretty good in Jose's absence last year. It'll be a pretty scary lineup now... Reyes, Cabrera, Bautista, Edwin, Lind, Rasmus, Lawrie, Arencibia, Izturis.

Bonaficio will be a pretty good super utility man. I can't wait for April to get here.

As much as we always say "I'm excited for the beginning of next season", this is absolutely the best team on paper arguably since the 93 series winner.

I'm glad that the ownership finally decided to fork out some decent money.
